think of another son of an automobile man. governor romney. he grew up in detroit. my data managers and his dad ran the entire automobile company. american motors. understand, in spite of that, he was willing to lead detroit go bankrupt. i don't think he is a bad guy. no, i don't think he is a bad guy. i am sure he grew up loving cars as much as i did. " what i don't understand and i don't think he understood that saving the automobile worker, saving the industry, what it meant all of america. not just autoworkers. i think he sought it in terms of balance sheets and write offs. folks, the bain way they bring the firm the highest profits but it is not the way to lead our country from the highest office. when things hung in the balance, literally hung in the balance, the president understood that this was about a lot more hope than the automobile industry. this is about restoring america's pride. he understood why it would mean to leave 1 million people without hope or work if he did not act. yet he also knew and understood the message that was sent around the world. the united states

bailout. those same things when mitt romney said let's let detroit go bankrupt, have a conversation about the auto bailout, about foreign policy and now that obama administration has not run from their record which was the assumption, which would be done, now the republicans are left flat footed wow, he has some answers and they then do not have answers to those. >> in fact, we did build it. >> we're also learning something through this process about romney as a manager and leader he was a turn around specialist is a myth. we ran a series of stories a couple weeks ago showing what romney did at bain wasn't turn around companies, he didn't even care about turning around the companies. what he did was go in and suck value out of the companies before they collapsed and he got his money whether they collapsed or not. he doesn't have experience in managing. he wouldn't know anything about the business hess was running. he was proud of that fact. other people do that. they took out the money and got out of dodge before the companies fell apart. the idea he's a managerial expert who knows how to

and cred detroit there to help working families and lower income people. so again, we really don't know and that's why he has opened himself up to a lot of criticism that his plan would end up cutting taxes on the wealthy and increasing them on middle and lower income households. >> erin, you covered the campaign in the spring and summer and romney and ryan said they closed loopholes in the tax code. annie just mentioned tax code but they just won't tell us which ones. take a listen. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> well, i can tell that you people at the high end, high-income taxpayers are going to have fewer deductions and exemptions. >> don't viewers have a right to know which loopholes you're going to go after? >> so mitt romney and i, based on our experience, think the best way to do this is to show the framework, show the outlines of these plans and work with congress to do this. >> tax loophole also is there a reason you guys respect naming specific tax loopholes? >> yes, because we want to get it done. >> now, am i missing something, because from what
